Pests can be more than just a nuisance; they can be downright dangerous!
Take a wasp nest, for example…. In most cases, wasps do not seek the company of humans, other insects or animals but, during early spring when the mated queen is looking for the perfect spot to build her nest, your front porch, garage, shed etc. all seem the perfect place. By the height of summer, as you are trying to enjoy the peace, beauty and tranquillity of your garden, you find several hundred angry wasps chasing you away. You need quick, responsive and effective pest control service in Gainsborough.
Or a family of rats; more used to living in riverbanks and other natural habitats, the heavy rain of winter has forced them from their flooded homes. Looking for somewhere warm, dry and safe from predators, they find that your garage or cellar makes the perfect venue to carry on breeding. With great nesting materials nearby, and a food source in terms of your compost bins and general rubbish, they have the right spot! But, naturally carrying a bacteria in their gut, should you come in to contact with their urine or faeces, ingesting this bacteria and you will find yourself very ill.
There are many other pests that are dangerous to our health – cockroaches and flies have a habit of cross-contaminating food, as well as spreading bacteria across it and work surfaces too – and others are a downright nuisance, causing damage in our home…
- The flea bites us as it wants to feed
- Bedbugs do the same, with some people having a localised reaction to the bites, being sore and itchy
- Carpet beetles and moths do not cause us harm, can cause hundreds of pounds worth of damage by chewing holes in carpets and natural materials
- Rabbits, as delightful as they are, can eat their way through crops, prize winning gardens and litter lawns and pastures with burrows
- The mole, inconspicuous apart from the molehills dotted across lawns, bowling greens, pastures etc.
- The list could go on and on…
